Fantasy Fire

Hi all!

Sorry for my absence again - this time I have a cold from hell to blame.  I spent my entire Thanksgiving weekend cooped up in my empty apartment trying to get better.  I slept, sat on the couch and watched movies, and slept some more.  The joys of living a few provinces away from family and having a fiance in the Canadian Navy, no one came to my rescue! :P  Such a crappy weekend, but I'm finally feeling better!  :)  I hope all my Canadian readers had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend though!




A few months ago, a lovely lady that I met through PAA offered to buy a bunch of us the gorgeous Max Factor Fantasy Fire.  At first I passed on it, but then I actually had a dream about it, and so the very next day I sent her payment and a few weeks later it arrived in my mailbox.  And it took me THIS long to try it out.


I layered it over one of my favourite polishes, Nails Inc. Baker Street.  These two polishes were seriously meant for each other.  Baker Street is stunning on it's own, but add the extra glitz of Fantasy Fire over it - WOW!  I just comes to life, and glows, and shifts colours, and just.. sparkles.  So, so stunning.


For the accent I used Orly Dayglow, then sponged on Baker Street, and stamped using BM-317 and Essie Blue Rhapsody.

(Sorry for the chipped nail!  I took these photos right before taking this mani off)
